I loved the authentic atmosphere and the prices are reasonable, but the food was 50/50. We enjoyed the fried dumplings, scallion pancakes (would have been better with a dipping sauce) and ground pork with noodles. The fried chicken and beef/noodle soup were not good. The soup was too salty and lacked depth of flavor. The dark meat chicken benefited from... More

I am not a big fan of Chinese food but this restaurant is definitively the best in the area. Know for dumplings. Price are low

We were a party of five at A & J. They offer a wide range of choices of noodles, dim sum, and soups. Seafood was very limited on the menu. This authentic Chinese food was tasty. It was very busy when we dined here but service did not suffer. A & J was a bit noisy, but tolerable. Ample parking.... More

Used to live in the area, and amongst my Taiwanese friends, this is a rock star. Never disappoints. Went back this weekend and it did not disappoint still! We ordered the Niang Mien, Mustard greens with tofu and edamame, beef noodle soup with fresh cut noodles, scallion pancake, pan fried dumplings. Smoked chicken. It is very reasonable and they are...

This was the place where my husband brought me we officially started dating. It's a small decent place with enough tables and chairs to sit. We never had to wait to be seated. The Chinese women were always nice (especially to my husband who has frequented the place even before we met). We usually order cold spicy noodles, friend wontons,... More

This place was written up in a recent magazine very well, and I love dim sum, so we had to try it. It is difficult to find, but that is not the only problem. The pork dumplings were good, not the best we have ever had, as the magazine suggested. There was no sauce for them and they were all... More

Located in a small strip mall on Rockville Pike. This place is packed and expect a short wait. The food is very authentic northern Chinese. Mostly noodles, dim sum, and soups. Very little fish or seafood on the menu.

I had high expectations for this restaurant. It was recommended by a Taiwanese friend and a Chinese friend who is a native of Beijing. It was not difficult to find if you have a GPS, if not, it might be hard to notice. There is parking up front. The restaurant is small. The menu is not large, it is not... More

Chinese food, mostly dumplings and noodle soups. There are some small side dishes, good for 1 person to go and choose several dishes. Nothing is elaborate, but taste like homemade simple food.
